August 21 Tuvan Throat Singing

Portland musician Enrique Ugalde, performing as Soriah, knows a little about Tuvan throat singing. He has traveled to the small Russian republic, which lies between Siberia and Mongolia, to study and perform. Last year he placed third in the world in a competition at the International Symposium of Khoomei, the annual world gathering of throat singers from Central Asia and beyond, including from Portland.

Soriah performs a variety of music, locally and internationally. Tonight he releases a new recording, Atlan. At Someday Lounge, 125 NW 5th 9PM $15
